Definition of CODE PRUSSIAN


CODE PRUSSIAN

Allgemeines Landrecht. This code is also known by
the name of Codex Fredericianus, or Frederician code. It was compiled by
order of Frederic H., by the minister of justice, Samuel V. Cocceji, who
completed, a part of it before his death, in 1755. In 1780, the work was
renewed under the superintendence of the minister Von Carmer, and prosecuted
with unceasing activity and was published from 1784 to 1788, in six parts.
The opinions of those who understood the subject were requested, and prizes
offered on the best commentaries on it; and the whole was completed in June,
1791, under the title " General Prussian Code."
